Review: Wild Country by Anne Bishop
Publication Date: 3/5/2019
Series: The World of Others #2
Rating: 4.5 Stars
There are ghost towns in the world—places where the humans were annihilated in retaliation for the slaughter of the shape-shifting Others.
One of those places is Bennett, a town at the northern end of the Elder Hills—a town surrounded by the wild country. Now efforts are being made to resettle Bennett as a community where humans and Others live and work together. A young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a human-style saloon. And a couple with four foster children—one of whom is a blood prophet—hope to find acceptance.
But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit. And the arrival of the Blackstone Clan, outlaws and gamblers all, will uncover secrets…or bury them.
How do you accurately describe a book that leaves you utterly and unequivocally satisfied from beginning to end? There are no “right” set of words to convey that. Wild Country gives readers a taste of the previous series and a great grasp on live post Meg/Simon. It delivers everything that readers of this series would want in a new story with new characters. A great plot, richly developed characters, and the teases of old favorites. It is a masterful weave of suspense in a diverse world of characters. My only hope is that there is more to come in the future.
